. and jay carney said if it doesn't get through, he would not rule out the potential use of an executive order by the president. >> i think we're at 57 yes votes. but still a few minutes away, we're told. let's be honest, if it does not make cloture here, the 60 votes needed -- >> it's done. >> it's done. >> and there are key republicans we have to watch on this that will provide the extra votes. >> we'll watch it. shannon, thank you. >>> the supreme court will hear the challenge to president obama's recess appointments to the national labor relations board. arguments will be presented on january 13th. the social security administration is defending itself after word that hundreds of people are losing federal benefits because they are wrongly listed as dead. on the flip side, over the past few years, social security doled out more than $133 million to dead people. the administration admits the death master file is not 100% accurate. and it says all other federal agencies use that file as their own database for paying benefits. >>> still ahead, why one obama care supporters says canceling
's not what they want. it's what the government forces them to buy. >> spokesman jay carney would not cloiz the door on possibility of cancellation letters coming for employees with coverage. he said that's up to employers. >> the growth rate in 2013 is less than one-third of the increases we saw a decade ago. so problem solved? no. problem significantly improved? yes. >> yet the national federation of independent business revealed a new survey of 921 small business owner who is say the opposite. 64% of small businesses say they're paying more for insurance premiums per employee than they did in 2012. this small business owner in seattle says she's gotten the cancellation notice. >> i thought i'd get a letter from my company that says my rates have gone up. it didn't occur i'd get the letter saying you're cancelled. >> in the nbc news poll suggests the president took a hit on the issue. as for the opinion on the new law, 6% say it's working well. 38% say it needs minor changes, 38% want major overhaul and 24% call for hit to be eliminated. as for other poll, 9% say it made them more confide
d.c. types going, we'll have jay carney on today. listen to how he answers the questions about this. this never happened. at least the person at the top and most of us, no, never. it is an answer you will never accept on anything in your own personal life. but it's very interesting for me to often hear how these guys and women answer questions that they're not really comfortable with. >> i will say this, does this matter? i think it matters, anything involving choosing a vice president inside politics, ittette goods how these candidates really think and make decisions which does matter for leadership and being in the white house. what is this about barack obama that he would never have replaced joe biden when he had these options. it may say loyalty. that's what it would have said about w. and george h.w. >> that's getting a little tired. i have to tell you. nobody cares more about this process than the man who's going to be on the ticket with whoever they choose. >> excellent point. excellent point. >> good conversation. >> i don't know if there's sand that deep to bury your head i
that a switch was discussed as were many options but he says it was never considered seriously. jay carney says the president dismissed the idea out of hand. i know for a fact that president obama never considered this, never thought about it, never entertained it. the vice president has been a partner of his from the 2008 campaign on, an excellent governing partner and excellent campaign partner. so again, campaigns test everything but as the book itself says this was never considered by the president. >> obama's former senior adviser, david plouffe, also denies any serious intent. plouffe tweeted "never any, any consideration of vice president of hillary rodham clinton switch." >>> congress is ramping up its investigation into the terror attacks on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, as you'll recall, four americans including the u.s. ambassador to libya tide in that ferocious attack. and republicans critical of the white house response on the night of september 11th have demanded access to witnesses. well now they'll get their chance in just a couple of weeks, cia operatives who were on t
-- caveat. today jay carney admitted that is no longer true. take a listen. >> from that podium will you admit that when the president said, if you have a plan, you'll get to keep it, that was not true? >> well, let's just be clear. what the president said and what everybody said all along is that they're going to be changes brought about by the affordable care act to create minimum standards of coverage. minimum services that every insurance plan has to provide. >> but the bottom line is, right now, there are 14 million people who buy their plan themselves because they don't get insurance through their employer. those folks are getting cancellation letters around the country. hundreds of thousands of cancellation letters going out. jay carney's opinion is, basically those folks will go into changes and get better insurance in the long run, having better health care, although that leaves occupy the fact of the matter is they're not going to keep their plans as the president had said over and over again. >> that would be, ed, can't believe my white house pass still works, henry in washing
. >> today in the white house press briefing room, jay carney had to explain the president's poetry in prose. >> the president said, a very simple statement, using the present tense. if you like the plan that you have, you can keep it. period. >> again. >> if you like the plan you had in 2009. >> i understand what you are saying. i can simply say that -- that was consistent with what the president had been saying since prior to the passage of the affordable care act. it described. he was describing what was written into the law which is that we would, the law would grandfather in those who had insurance and liked it and wanted to keep it even once the affordable care act was implemented. and i understand that yeah, there is more to that story. because of choices that insurance companies made to change the plans that individuals might have had. >> also, today, in a house ways and means committee hearing, republican chairman, dave camp asked head of center for medicare and medicaid services about this all. up ai ju >> i want to mention a letter i received from my district. and this man wrote m
the press," david gregory, white house press secretary, jay carney, leigh gallagher and later, celebrity chef rocco dispirito. >> are you going to put on an apron and cook? >> yeah, i'm going to put on an apron and say mmm delicious. top stories from the politico playbook. bill karins is up now. >> as far as my forecast goes for today, if you are going to be traveling in the northeast, the airports are going to be a big issue especially this morning. we have strong thunderstorms with high winds that are going to blow through the big cities. as far as right now, they are located in central pennsylvania on interstate 81. they are going to head into the big city. not even lightning with the storm. it's a strong line of storms with winds gusting up to 60 miles per hour. winds are 36 in philly. 39 in buffalo. a windy day. it's very warm. feels like the spring feel with the humidity. when the front goes through, bad weather with it. you don't want to be under big trees with the winds gusting to 40 to 50 miles per hour. the rain is early today in the east. it's when the worst airport delays wil
out because of these phone calls. jay carney at the white house says the allegation is preposterous and inaccurate, but one insurance insider willing to go on the record, major consultant for the health insurance industry and critic of obama care tells cnn that the white house is excerpts massive pressure on the industry, including trade associations to keep quiet. and our sources are confirming to us what he says adding they fear retribution from the white house. there is embarrassment about the policies that need to be dropped or canceled due to the obama care regulations. but he also says the industry specifically warned the administration this would be the result if those additional coverage requirements moved forward which they did. >> the white house flatly denying that they are excerpting a exerting any pressure at all, right in. >> yes, according to jay carney, he says it ignores the fact insurance companies are talking about the law because they are trying to reach millions of new customers who will now have new affordable options available. >> drew griffin, thank you. comi
know, what's the point? jay carney today was, frankly, apologetic. they said they're going to go ahead and make some changes. let me play just as jay described it. >> we recognize that there need to be additional constraints on how we gather and use intelligence. >> so does he have a point? that there should be additional constraints? or is that basically unilaterally disarming as someone told me today, that the u.s., if it backs down now and stops doing this monitoring, it would be very damaging possibly for the security of the u.s. as well as its allies? >> what he said was the diplomatic correct thing to say. the executive branch is in charge of this. they know what they've got to look at in order to keep america safe. this is not a partisan issue. this is a bipartisan issue. we all agree that we've got to do the kind of intelligence gathering that we do in order to keep americans safe. >> so you don't think they're going to back off unnecessarily. they're going to say the right thing, but they're going to do what they need to do. >> the other side would say the same thing under the
there was a protest. jay carney the president and susan rice claimed there was no evidence of an al qaeda connection, it was not preplanned it was a protest spawned by hateful video that went bad. my belief the fbi interviews two days after should be released to the congress so we can see if whether or not there was evidence that there was never a protest. >> is there another way to do th this? janet yellen leading the federal reserve arguably one of the most important positions leading in washington in the coming years ahead. >> absolutely, yes. >> is it fair to hold up one part of government in order to make a point on another? >> is it fair to tell the congress when you have a national security failure like this, we will not make available to you the people who survived the attack so you can make an independent inquiry, is it fair to withhold from the congress a separate branch of the government with oversight responsibilities, the basic evidence about what happened. i don't like holding up people, that's not in my nature. i've run out of ideas and i am not going to let this whole chapter close w
paternalism. this is jay carney explaining the president and the president himself today saying, look, the only reason we are cancelling your plans is because you are too stupid to understand what you need. we are giving you a better plan. sure, you like the plan. sure, you chose the plan. sure, you paid for the plan and renewed the plan. but you don't even understand that this is substandard as defined by a bunch of experts that we slapped together to issue regulations in washington. it is the essence of the entitlement state, the essence of the nanny state. you can't have a drink over 16 ounces. you can't have health insurance you chose and you like as a free citizen because we know it is not good enough. that's the essence of obama care. it is the essence of the larger project of liberalism. it was grating today when you heard it. >> he didn't come out and say let me be honest. i know i said "period." i know i said this is a guarantee sh period. i was wrong. this is how i was wrong. there wasn't even an honest, let me tell it to you straight now. you know 2 million of you have been
of them have been aired, showed in fact they weren't ready and they knew they weren't ready. today jay carney said the president was shown this website ahead of time as though it was ready. so figuring out who inside the organization knew but failed to communicate is important. but more importantly because there's so many other areas including risk of private information coming out in a website that isn't ready, we need to ask those questions and see the -- what's internally going on. >> mike rogers, chairman of the house and intelligence committee, asked tough questions about whether or not information people provide to that website about their social security numbers, their income, whatever, is really secured. you want to subpoena information to show that they knew in advance the security, the cybersecurity, was not adequate? >> exactly. we need to know who knew, why they should still be on the job. you know, there's more complex information. do you realize that tax i.d. information is in there, voter information is in there? this is a very important link to a also of private informa
. if it doesn't it's junk and will be trashed. >> jay carney said if you like your plan, but it is a crummy plan you can't keep your plan. that's what the president wanted -- everyone is making excuses. >> this was a lie barack obama and the democrats sold to the american people because they knew if they sold everyone the idea that they would lose their health insurance, it would be replaced by a plan that was double or triple it never would have passed. they lied because they knew if they told the truth it never would have happened. >> that's key. kirsten. >> the reason why we were sold this is for a lot of people in the obama administration and the democrats they believe the ends justifies the means. their means are good. they have good intentions and yes, we need a better health care system. you know me. i'm a conservative. we need insurance reform coupled with tort reform. we need major change and people are afraid. >> we have the free market. >> we have to sell this hard. >> senator, you have lived the life. >> let me tell you uh -- >> i have lived it. i have abused it as well. >> i don't k
in this country you can keep it. if it doesn't it is junk and it will be trashed. >> jay carney said today, if you like your plan but it's a crummy plan you can't keep your plan. everyone is making excuses. >> first of all this idea that you are saying people's plans are crummy is patronizing. second of all thfdz a lie barack obama and democrats sold to the american people. they knew if they sold it to them they would lose their health insurance it would be replaced by a plan they were doubling or crippling it wouldn't have passed. if they told the truth it would have never happened. >> that's key. kirsten. >> the reason why we were sold this is because for a lot of people in the obama administration and democrats believed the end justified the means. so their means are good. they have good intentions. yes, we need a better healthcare system in this country. i am a conservative. i believe that. we need healthcare reform. we need insurance reform coupled with tort reform. people are afraid of change. >> senator, you have lived this life. >> let me tell you, i have lived it, and i afused it as well.
it & it will be trashed. >> katie. jay carney actually said today if you like your plan but it's a crummy plan, you can't keep your plan. that's what the president -- everyone's making excuses. >> first of all, this idea that you're saying people's plans are crummy, it's very patronizing. second of all, this was a lie that barack obama and the democrats sold to the american people because they knew that if they sold everyone this idea, that they'll lose their health insurance that it would get replaced but a plan that was double or triple what they were paying then it would never have passed. they lied because if they were to tell the american people the truth that would have never happened. that's the bottom line. >> that's key. kirsten. >> the reason why we were sold this is because for a lot of people in the obama administration and the democrats they believed that the end justifies the means. so their means are good. they have good intentions. and yes, we need a better health care system in this country, hands down. and you know me, sean. i'm a conservative. i believe we need health care reform. we
to be lowering expectation. here's press secretary jay carney yesterday before the dismal numbers came out. >> if you're asking me will enrollment be low, the answer is, yes, because that was always going to be the case. martha: live from the white house with more on this, ed henry. it doesn't sound like the administration is on track to enroll its goal of seven million americans in obamacare this year, certainly. >> reporter: right. and what they're trying to do now, martha, is manage expectations. that's what jay carney was doing there. they're trying to compare it to mitt romney's situation oh so many years ago. in the early days people shopped around, talked to their spouse, and then they make a decision closer to january 1st. we'll see how all that pans out. but as you say, these early numbers are embarrassing. it's nothing short of embarrassing for the administration. day one, six people enrolled. and as you say, this is from the administration's own internal notes at the health and human services department. it was released by a republican critic, darrell issa, but he's getting info
i. white house secretary jay carney said americans should look to the insurers for an explanation. >> part two. >> basically, throw you off that plan telling you after a year or two that it was changing and said, here's your new option because your plan has changed, that that new plan is grandfathered in, how can that be? you can't grandfather a plan in 2010 na didn't come into existence in 2012 or 2011. it's not about fault t. insurers are in the leadup to these marketplaces are doing what they had always done. >> all right, the most heated exchange came when a democratic congressman took issue with republicans that suggesting they've offered an alternative to obama care. take a look. >> we lost the policy fight and what did we do? we went back to our districts and we told our seniors although we voted no, we personally believe and we'll work with the bush administration to make it work. that's what we did and how many of you stood up to do that? none. zero. zero. >> well, will the gentleman yield? >> yes, i will. >> i will just tell you. >> where are you? >> right here. you aske
any insurance, press secretary jay carney essentially says that it makes no essential to replace no insurance with inadequate health insurance. >> no hospitalization, no, you know, let's go back to where insurance companies could throw you off whenever they want. maybe slap a annual limit on you. or, a lifetime limit. exclude you if you have a preexisting condition. charge you double if you're a woman, like that's, you know the world prior to the affordable care act that there, they want to return to because there has been no alternative offered. >> reporter: but the president's critics say setting minimum standards for health care coverage is hardly in the spirit of his promise if you like your plan you can keep it. senate minority leader mitch mcconnell says some of the standards themselves are questionable. he read a letter from one of his constituents on the senate floor. >> he is not happy about this at all. especially given the fact that a plan on the obamacare exchanges will dramatically drive up his insurance costs from $400 a month to more than $700 a month with zero sub
media just happens to be shocked by it as well. >> sure. >> jay carney is like wrestling cats, as they say. they used to want to focus on ed henry. now you have every reporter putting up their hand and you can't say, well, fox, the people at fox. now he's got to play it straight and answer these questions. and the president's going to have trouble shaking his repeated statements about keeping their plan. because the people he wrote were grandfathered into the plan, you can't force an insurance company to continue to insure someone if their math doesn't add up. >> because they squeezed the language in there with obamacare, whereas before they say, you could keep your insurance. no one will have to get out of it. they have to keep you. well, no, there is language in there that says if they even change their co-pay to $5 more, they can drop you. >> they're out. >> that's what's happening. >> a total escape from responsibility here in terms of keeping those that are insured and we're going to maybe hear some answers from kathleen sebelius. who knows? those that are going to questi
. jay carney was asked about, hey, what's the number going to be? he is now tamping down expectations, as well he should. watch. >> if you're asking me will enrollment be low, the answer is yes because that was always going to be the case. >> oh really? how come the first thing you said the reason you can't get on is the high volume. and how many democrats do we hearsay there is high volume because people really love this thing. six really loved it the first day. >> how can you assess low if you don't have a number? that is what is interesting as well. they're saying we don't have the information but it's low. you must be looking at something to give that low assessment. >> the website has been disastrous. i've got to give the president credit, he said seven weeks ago, he asked is it ready and they told him it was ready. again punting and blaming, not taking responsibility. that's the vice president trying to save the president, who has been busy lately, i guess, all summer. now let's talk about the other element to this. the report we told you about yesterday that insurance companies
